that photototof netanyahu and obama sitting on the couch in the white house? >> the oval office. >> do you remember that? >> sure. being lectured. >> the whole body posture and so forth. but some of the video emerging from this trip is so authentic and even the words of netanyahu describing obama and what he means, what obama means to him in this relationship. a true friend. it was very authentic. >> yes, i think it was. and i think they did have, for the first time really, the kind of environment and personal contact within that environment that made this all possible, and they all both know, and certainly they know how important a good personal relationship is on an issue as complicated and as difficult here. that is an essential way to be able to resolve it. >> john, let's get beyond -- >> do you give the obamas credit for working it out that way? >> yes, i think they both deserve credit but i think the president made a major step forward. a, in the visit. he had not visited before, b, in terms of the tone, and c -- >> you know netanyahu well. netanyahu has some rough edges. obama's rou
president obama and netanyahu. of course president obama is saying to netanyahu, look, do what you got to do, we got your back. how do you see it moving forward? >> i think this was a successful trip. what he did, what president obama did was to give netanyahu a green light. do what you got to do and we've got your back. they have said that before but in the press conference, i thought was very revealing. they kept repeating it. president obama then said we're going to give you a lot more assistance, military assistance to deal with that. netanyahu thanked him for it and said at the end of the press conference that he couldn't resist, now for all of those, i want to make sure you understand the president has really done something significant. he is going to give us the military assistance that we need. i think to translate it all, netanyahu, you do what you got to do. you've got a green light to do it. we will give you the assistance that you need to do it. we will have your back but we're not going to with you shoulder to shoulder. >> arthel: let's go here and what do you think is the presi
this trip a very successful one. you know, they had prime minister netanyahu and president obama had their moments. they exchanged laughs. there were, you know, it was a far cry from a moment in the oval office that we saw last year where there was very -- there was a lot of tension. i think that he sort of achieved what he wanted to do there on iran, on middle east peace, on trying to move that along a little. so i think he sort of, you know, this was a trip to really sort of embrace israel, to kind of give them a nod. he hadn't gone his entire four years, his entire first term. so i think that this was a largely positive trip for him. >> andy, the speech the president delivered to young palestinians and israelis on thursday, it was -- it was a great speech. let's listen to some of that. oh, i wish we could have. i just got from my director we don't have it. it was a great speech. did you interpret it that way, as well? i mean it seemed to appeal to both sides. all the applause that was peppered throughout that speech. >> the speech on thursday was the centerpiece of this trip for p
agendas. i think that everything that was said, what you heard is that obama and benjamin netanyahu were much closer together are not. what obama said, he said we are not going to allow iran to have clear weapons. he said we are not going to allow them to have weapons in an atmpt to contain them. they were ch closer than they have been. a very key subject. a. lou: let's turn to something that i did not want to hear. that was america and president obama are ready to attack iran. i found that there could be all sorts of excuses and rationalizations and reasons that the president of israel said that. judy, this is too bellicose for my taste. >> i think that he says exactly what is on his mind. i think that a 90-year-old president who helped israel acquire its own nuclear weapons, they were reminding israel and the united states at the top agenda item for israel is making sure that iran does not process redline. i think the two men are not closer to coming to an agreement on what that definition is. lou: if you would like to respond, please. >> it is a tricky issue. the u.s. and israel have
, but it is possible. >> paul: welcome to journ"the journal editorial report", i'm paul bgigot. that's president obama in israel and the first thawing the often frosty relationship with benjamin netanyahu. is it a turning point in the region? let's ask dan henninger and global view columnist bret stevens. so, bret, the big news out of this, or at least at the surface, that a new good feeling between prime minister y netanyahu and president obama. real or does it makes a difference? >> real, and it's definitely good in terms of the optics, president obama spent the first four years trying to put as much distance between him avenue sn the israelis as he could. it didn't serve american interests or anyone's interest. now he's there and talking about my friend bb. maybe it's not sincere, but it's creating a perception of greater closeness. that's a good thing. israelis respond better when they're being held than when they're being scolded. no question, the speech went over well. the real question is whether the president has a realistic vision for-- >> well, he raised the prospects of this peace agreement
are netanyahu and i see obama giving f-16s, tanks, $1.5 billion to the former head of the muslim brotherhood, mohammed morsi who think the israelis are descendants of apes and pigs, i know what i would be thinking? >> we can control with the egyptian military. >> sean: the military leadership has been changed by morsi. his puppets are in charge? >> we can control it but no rationale for a pegs and morsi the fact is things he has said insults he has toward the israelis and jews and whole attitude, all of that. it goes back to when we threw mubarak under the buses. >> sean: and what happened to the arab spring it was an arab nightmare. i was on the air every night. ambassador bolton were there. there were v some of us and article said i was muslim brotherhood obsessed. how couldn't other people see this coming? >> because the position we had, president obama came in with the belief there moral equivalency and bad allies. the u.s. was responsible for a lot of the bad actions by the islamists and terrorists. they generally believed this was the real people speaking. he went on the apology tour a
. >> netanyahu is a big boy. what concerns him is what does that show about president obama's real instincts. is he going to war with iran in defense of a country -- that is what netanyahu has to worry about. if to publicly treat netanyahu that way it weakens his opposition in middle east because the allies see how we treat the main allies and discourages allies. >> sean: if you are netanyahu and i see obama giving f-16s, tanks, $1.5 billion to the former head of the muslim brotherhood, mohammed morsi who think the israelis are descendants of apes and pigs, i know what i would be thinking? >> we can control with the egyptian military. >> sean: the military leadership has been changed by morsi. his puppets are in charge? >> we can control it but no rationale for a pegs and morsi the fact is things he has said insults he has toward the israelis and jews and whole attitude, all of that. it goes back to when we threw mubarak under the buses. >> sean: and what happened to the arab spring it was an arab nightmare. i was on the air every night. ambassador bolton were there. there were v some of us
the symbolism. obama will tell netanyahu unpleasant things, but you won't hear a word of it. it will be pictures of them joking around and yucking it up. it will be in their political advantage to do it. >> speaking of something you said. isn't it like mom and dad putting on a good show for the kids, but secretly they are going to get divorced? >> i don't think it was a compliment to begin with. if you threw a party and invited everyone you knew, you would see the biggest gift is from me. and they would say, thank you for being a friend. subtext, bring me a present, obama. in conclusion evie is greedy and blamp was a whore. >> you are saying that because you dated bea arthur in the 80s and there was a lot of strive. >> let it be. >> let it be indeed. she was quite the tumbler. she was into gym that is sticks. gymnastics. i loved bea arthur. but i wasn't crazy for maud. >>> okay. bill will discuss his book, i do the news and do it nude. first, what is a don't feed me t-shirt? something bill would wear, and then he would die. been waiting for the price of mattresses to fall? then hurry, sleep trai
this for my friend barack obama, and netanyahu could make the same case for the people criticizing him at home for apologizing to erdogan. >> you mentioned syria. when the president got to jordan, he and king abdullah held a joint press conference, news conference, and the the president announced there he is going to be asking congress for more money to go to jordan, to help them deal with all the refugees coming in from syria. why is that important for the obama administration? >> judy, when i said there were two of the three allies in the region, the third most important ally there for the united states is jordan, a tiny country, but punches above the weight. jordan security forces and intelligence forces are excellent. and i described in the earlier piece some of the role it's playing. but king abdullah's on somewhat shaky ground, the economy is bad, and part of the problem is the refugees are a huge pressure point as the king sort of eloquently said today. few of us saw the foreign minister this afternoon who said it's almost as if-- he said it's as if another eight or nine, the king said
leader. the holocaust memorial with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. before president obama left israel diplomatic kudos to him. he was able to persuade netanyahu to apologize. the two allies have had an icy relationship. >>> small airports are being forced to close the air traffic control as the latest fallout in the sequester cuts. the faa has ordered 149 control towers to shut down beginning in just the next couple of weeks. most of our local airports were spare td. sacramento and salinas will be affected. air traffic controllers warn pilots will have to land their planes without an extra set of eyes in the towers. >>> a suspected love triangle gone horibly wrong in virginia. three marines dead following a murder suicide. the gunman was a man and the victims a man and a woman. a difficult can week for the marines. on monday seven marines were killed during a mortar explosion. >>> columbine, virginia tech, aurora and newtown all tragedies that tore communities apart. they failed to produce significant change in our gun laws. >> democratic leaders are struggling to deliver. why harry r
arc of netanyahu and obama's relationship is about iran and netanyahu has at times seem to all but threaten a preemptive strike with or without the u.s. pap lot of behind-the-scenes action on the part of the u.s. to get israel to climb down from that position which was successful in 2012. now it seems like they converged a bit. what's your read on where they are right now coming out of this trip >> my read is pretty much that. i was watching before what you said about the president going there and there were no real policy shifts. i think there was a policy shift from netanyahu and this is a culmination of a policy shift starting at the u.n. speech you remember the famous bomb with the red line where he said there's more time but i'm still going to don't make noise about the iranian threat. he said yes i agree with the president's assessment and this is the assessment of the u.s. and really intelligence services. when iran decides to make a nuclear weapon it will take them a year. it's significant. >> this is an example of the president bringing netanyahu towards the american p

me begin by saying that many israelis have been very skeptical about president obama's security interests in israel and up to now, a frosty relationship with benjamin netanyau. why should mr. netanyahu trust president obama now? >> you're right, uma, there was a lot of skepticism and even suspicious about president obama's relationship with israel and with the israeli prime minister. we have had four very tense years. but i know in america, you say that there is no second chance to make a first impression. well, the president got that second chance and i think he took it i think his visit to israel, as far as the feeling and the respect and the emotion of the israeli people was a great success. it was a very impressive charm offensive. he reached out to the people. he touched every nerve and every fiber of israeli society with his words. and i must say that when air force one took off, it carried with it a totally different president, as far as at least the emotions, the expectations i and trust of the israeli people is concerned. >> then you're saying that this trip obviously h

, going into this trip, prime minister netanyahu and president obama had a bit of a strained relationship, and i think what this did was the president made it very clear that israel is open and able to defend itself however it sees fit, and so when it comes to iran and it comes to the nuclear program there, the president left the door open when it comes to what israel may do and what the u.s. may do when it comes to maybe targeted military interventions when it comes to the nuclear program there. >> let's look at what happened, this voteorama. david, the senate was charging through about 70 amendments overnight. it finally passed its first budget in four years. it came about like 5:00 in the morning. how significant is that and in terms of timing without taking us to the very last minute? >> well, alex, as you know, this congress they tend to do that, but i think it's important not just symbolically that the senate passed a budget for the first time in four years but also what it's doing is staking out the democratic position for the upcoming battle over the next round of negotiations on
there, but when barack obama arrived in israel for the first time as president this week, he had what he called his homework .n hand on the list, healing a political rift with prime minister benjamin netanyahu, winning over a skeptical and gently c, restarting the moribund middle east peace talks in part by appealing to israelis to see it from the palestinian point of iew. >> put yourself in their shoes. look at the world through their eyes. just as israelis built a state in their homeland, palestinians have a right to be a free people in their own land. gwen: but make no mistake, this was an emphatically pro-israel trip, especially when the president talked tough to two of the region's problematical leaders, presidents mahmoud ahmadinejad of iran and bashar .l-assad of syria >> i'm confident that assad will go. it's not a question of if, it's when. and so part of what we have to spend a lot of time thinking about is what's the aftermath of that and how does that work in a way that actually serves the syrian people? gwen: and today he did some hand-holding with the leaders of jordan and
between benjamin netanyahu and his turkish counterpart to restore diplomatic relations. netanyahu apologized for the deaths of nine turkish activists and naval raid on gaza bound flotilla. he helped arrange that call before leaving israel. palestinians are clearly frustrated. they say president obama's message of hope is empty, just words. the story now from our reporter. >> president obama's last trip took him to bethlehem. highlight of this trip that has strengthened bonds with israelis but frustrated palestinians. they vented their anger with protests fueled in part by obama not condemning israeli settlements to build houses on land long held by palestinians. for families like these. today their house is an island. this is how over the past 30 years a nearby israeli settlement has grown, swallowing up almost half their land. rest cut off my a security fence. it's like we're in a prison, he says. we have cameras, gates and fences and walls. >> why do you stay? >> this is my homeland. this is my house, he says. the israelis are stealing the land day and night reaching parts of of
at the end of his term. we'll see if president obama has success. he came here with a somewhat dysfunctional relationship with the israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, and they were actually have been frosty in the past and either they're great actors or becoming better friends. >> it was important success the president accomplished getting israel to apologize to turk key for the deadly commando raid in 2010 that killed nine people. he's pushing israel to start peace talks with palestinians. how likely is that to get back on track and how important is the apology from benjamin netanyahu? >> reporter: the two things are not connected at all but could be connected down the road. turkey is a key u.s. ally, israel is a key u.s. ally, syria is in the middle. iran, you have questions what's happening in egypt, these are two countries in the region the american president needs to trust and likes to trust, he'd like to work together on the big challenges. the relationship in turkey the train was off the tracks for three years. that was something the president worked on quietly for months and
he accomplish there? the israeli verdict on the visit next. >>> president obama is in jordan tonight after wrapping up a visit to israel. it began with questions about just how well he would go over with the israeli people. his relationship with prime minister netanyahu after all has been strained at times. the question is would people pick up on the chill at the top or warm up to the president. we now have the answer and chief national correspondent john king tonight to tell us about it. john, a lot of speculation about what kind of reception the president might get in israel, how ordinary israelis, how leaders might react to him there. how did it go overall? >> reporter: anderson, i spent a lot of time in this region so you know what seems like concrete under your feet can suddenly turn to quicksand. the president will head home tomorrow feeling pretty happy especially on the point you just raised, reception among the israeli people. he has a very mixed reputation if you look at the polling. i spent a lot of time talking to every day israelis. especially because of the cairo speech
of the hour. president obama wrapping up four day tour in the middle east. before leaving israel the president managed to broker a an apology from netanyahu to the british prime minister over commando raid turkish ship that killed 8. he admitted mistakes were made in 2010 as forces were nato embargo. >> can i tell you about this meteor? >> i love that i was up up all night tracking this. this was the meteor they were talking about if you live along the east coast. it's all anybody is talking about. video of reportedly a meteor over a home in maryland from north carolina all the way up to maine. hundreds of people reported official across the sky. claims to captured the security video too. nasa experts says the space rock was probably the size of a softball or volleyball. they are not sure what size ball it was. perhaps a basketball. it burned up in the atmosphere though. >> alisyn: thank goodness. thank you for monitoring that. please call me immediately if you see it heading towards your house. >> clayton: i called you and your husband said she is asleep. >> alisyn: actually, stop calling me.
